Frank Guille (United Kingdom, 1927-2018)

A ‘Trimma’ cabinet/sideboard. 1950s.

Plywood and beech wood with yellow formica top.

Frank Guille was one of Britain’s finest mid-century designers. His work was defined by a dedication to function, utility and simplicity.

Under a string of brilliant teachers, Frank Guille was shaped to become part of a new wave of designers. He first learned from English masters Robin Day and Gordon Russell. Later, on scholarship in Copenhagen, he studied under one of the founders of Danish modern furniture design – Kaare Klint“. [Mr.Bigglesworthy website]
